At Dar Yacout we were absolutely amazed that there was no drinks menu nor explained that it was a set menu,and 6 courses at that! Too much food & felt glutinous to expect you to eat it all. If they cut back the portions & improved the tastiness then we feel like they wouldn't be trading on past experiences. The... More

Dar Yacout is a great venue, nice patio to dine on but for us was far too touristy. The tables (or most of them) both on the roof terrace where you have a drink and on the patio are set out slightly strangely so that you have to face the musicians who are there to "entertain" you. We were quite... More

Having read these reviews we thought we would try the Dar Yacout restaurant. Our first impressions were amazing. The unremarkable entrance way opened to a wonderful internal court yard with a beautiful pool around which we had dinner. They ushered us upstairs to the room top bar for a cocktail. When asked for a list, the answer was there is... More

Dar Yacout is the place in Marrakech to eat real Moroccan food. The staff, the ambiance and the food are al exceptional. Can not recommend then enough. It is beyond great.

This is definitely worth going to for the unique experience. As others have said, you arrive and are taken to the roof terrace for a look at the view and then taken inside (it was December) to a grand hall for pre-dinner drinks at your own pace. When you are ready for dinner, you are escorted downstairs to select a... More

I will use my review of the restaurant to highlight a part of Moroccan hospitality and values that was truly surprising. We had booked Yakout via our hotel after friends who had been there had recommended it. Upon arrival we were escorted to the roof for some local music and a glass of wine. Typical Moroccan, albeit touristic but still... More

We booked a table here during our holiday in May. We tried to find it by following a map through the Medina but got lost. That was our mistake, we were followed by a street gang who demanded money from us but we got away in a taxi who took us to the restaurant. There is no sign for the... More

Prior to our arrival in Marrakech I had made a list of restaurants for a special night out and asked our riad owner which one he would recommend. He said Dar Yacout would be his first choice. What fe failed to mention was that he only went there once six years ago. Pre-dinner drinks on the rooftop were a huge... More

A family run business and 27 years old. Opens at 8pm and we suggest get there early for the best tables. They employ 60 staff so this is no small restaurant. Located in the heart of the Old City and an amazingly huge property. The architecture and design is unique. Drinks on the roof terrace with some wonderful blues type... More

we came here 10 years ago and it was very nice. The service has changed. I was not impressed our waiter was rude and had no interest in explaining the food, which is a set menu. ok for picture taking, but don't expect good service.
